Summary: The sound quality isn't all that great; specifically, the bass is way too strong and very hollow-sounding. There is also a persistent hum that is pretty annoying if the volume is low or there is no music playing (i.e. if the music isn't loud enough to cover it up).
Summary: Well, I thought that I would try the vs4121. I love my Altec Lansing VS2121's but the volume control was getting scratchy so I thought these would replace them. I beleive that these would be great in a large room with medium to high volume but in a small office I found them difficult to adjust.
Summary: I don't recommend these speakers. The two satellites are acceptable, but the sub-woofer is waaaay too 'bassey.' It is also noticeably muddier sounding than my Yamaha sub (same size) in my living room. Furthermore, the one's I received look distinctly more silver than black.
Summary: I don't know what i excepted for 85.00.The wire from the remote speaker is built into it and came up a little short for me so i had to buy some extension to make it work where i wanted it.Also the Base is not protected magnectly so put it at least two feet away like the manual directs you to.All in...
Summary: Reviews for these speakers are remarkably mixed as you'll see. Unfortunately, I must agree with the naysayers. For the price, these speakers are quite mediocre. In fact, at low volume, my Toshiba laptop's (Satellite P105) built in Harman/Kardon speakers sound noticeably better than these.
Summary: I purchased these speakers primarily to replace the Altec Lansing ADA885 speakers that came with my Dell desktop computer 5 years ago. They don't even come close. Before one of the cables on the ADA885 system shorted, it was probably the best sound you could possibly get from computer speakers.
